"sense of design and composition are the same for all of these disciplines, the only thing that changes from one to the next are the tools"

excellent post which i agree with wholeheartedly. glad to see you said it somewhat more clearly than I. having been very into photography for the past few years, i can assure everyone that there is a VERY large creative element that goes into a "good" photo. i am very much still learning the "art." (but having a freakin blast in the process)

good to see you getting into it dire! the process alone is invaluable...

all the credit is due to my better half, i could sense there was something askew about the idea of a "hierarchy of artistic media", it just happened that she does both and photos are only used as a stepping stone for her, so i believe her when she says she would never think for an instance that what she does is somehow superior to the work of the photographers she both admires and learns from

having said that, both of us tend to steer clear of installation art and techno-pop music, one of the problems is anyone can and will endeavor (no shortage of audacity) but it's like anything else, there are only so many people who have an "eye" or an "ear" to pull it off and if anything these medias are a lot more difficult to work in and still have something worthwhile to say

for me, i would rather get lost in a set of complex jazz changes that speak to me rather than struggle with finding something new to say with C and G...and to be honest, admitting that is nothing more than an indication of my own limitations :)

and it sure is one heck of a process :) and a pricey one to boot. i truly enjoy the learning curve, the studying to understand, and the practice, practice, practice. it sure can be humbling at times when the results fall far short of the mark, but that only pushes further.

your wife sounds like a very artistic soul and one, undoubtedly, with great talent. i am still but a neophyte who looks forward to a never ending process of learning, discovery, and, quite simply, a true enjoyment of the arts.

i am actually in the process of putting a rather simple website together for some of my photos. i'll have to link it when i am "done" so that i can receive much abuse and nasty criticism from the mob of miscreants which frequent this place ;)

peace man :)

To think, the geeky, skirt chasing PM actually stood up for "art"...perhaps it's because the word is so much like one of my other favorite words. You know, making good use of an "f" and "BAM!", perfect for the juvenile humor around here.

And you thought I was only good for PR during wartime...

i would expect no less of you than to stand up for your concept(s) of artistic principles. (irregardless of your penchant for rectal gusts)
